Seeking sweet luscious un-halal votes?

MM Online - New PAS-led pact won’t dent Pakatan Harapan armour, analysts say

KUALA LUMPUR, March 11 ― The new opposition alliance PAS plans to form next week with an unnamed partner is not likely to achieve the Islamist party’s goal of hurting Pakatan Rakyat or Barisan Nasional’s (BN) chances at the ballot boxes the next federal polls, observers said.

Political analysts told Malay Mail Online that this so-called third force would create barely a ripple in the country’s political landscape as the 14th general election will remain either Pakatan Harapan’s or BN’s to win.

Associate Professor Dr Jeniri Amir said at most, the new alliance could steal some votes from Pakatan Harapan.

“Yes, PAS's new pact can split the (opposition) vote… might deceive some voters in GE14 (14th general election), but the impact is going to be nothing on Pakatan Harapan and BN.

“If you ask me, it is just a dream and PAS is not going to go anywhere with this as the party is more interested in championing its own agenda after falling out with PKR and DAP,” the Universiti Sarawak Malaysia senior lecturer told Malay Mail Online when contacted.

For analyst Khoo Kay Peng, PAS’s latest maneuver was just the Islamist party’s way of flexing its muscles to show its former allies in the opposition that it was doing just fine on its own.

He said, however, that while PAS is free to do as it pleases, starting a new opposition bloc is “politically unnecessary” and akin to putting the cart before the horse.

The analyst said the party should first set its priorities and political goals right before forming an alternative pact to Pakatan Harapan, the alliance it refused to team up with due to its failure to close ranks with its former allies in the DAP.

“In Selangor, PAS is working with PKR, DAP and Parti Amanah Rakyat (Amanah) and on the federal level, (PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul) Hadi (Awang) is seen to be somewhat aligned with Umno… I think the party is little confused at the moment,” he said.

Whatever its boast, PAS lusts after Chinese votes. That has been why it declares it's teaming up with a multiracial party, not any Islamic party but a multiracial one, though saying this when it's playing footsie tootsie with UMNO.

And it hopes somehow PKR in Selangor will help shore up its likeable-to-Chinese credentials there.

For more, see my earlier post titled Another Malaysian father-in-law story where you will find out why PAS has been so keen to show Pak Haji Hadi Awang has a Chinese relative, wakakaka.


  1. Have pity on the poor sweetie who is Pak Haji Hadi's daughter-in-law.
    She has never appeared in public, never said a word in public, never been seen or heard in relation to anything political.

    Yet she is already fodder for use in political attacks on Hadi.

    1. am plainly looking at the timing wrt haji hadi's menantu perempuan cina as informed by pas recently and when did the son marry the lady. does anyone know?

      if the marriage took place before the 13th g.e., siapa yg nak score dulu?

    2. Yusuf and Aishah got married in Jan or Feb 2012. Her maiden name is Jacqueline.

    3. Tanah Melayu, that's only because PAS itself promoted that piece of information, obviously to show Chinese voters Pak Haji Hadi is a 'Ng-Kwnua' (pak mertua) to a chinese sweetie, wakakaka

    4. Are people so simple-minded to be swayed over claims of the ethnic origins of a daughter-in-law etc?

      For that matter, our DPM also said he was raised by a Malaysian Chinese foster-father, and asked "Am I anti-Chinese when I have a Chinese foster father?"

      And it can also work the other way. Remember during the 90s when Mohamed Rahmat used this ethnic origins thing to taint Anwar’s wife Wan Azizah as “unfit” for leadership as she had “darah cap naga” ? (Actually Rahmat himself was half Chinese and had a Chinese wife).

      They should leave the daughter-in-law alone, lest she become a target too.

  2. kt.. what have you got on aisyah abdullah? tell me more.. tell me more..

  3. the pact is with an intent to avoid post electoral crisis in case of marginal victory.. so why not?

  4. Sometimes it does not pay to talk big.Donald Trump,the front runner for the presidential nominee of the Republican party talks cock,and tonight in Chicago,he got the shaft,a foot long shafted into his tight ass.Screaming and wailing,he ran with his tail between his legs,into his waiting plane and headed back to New York.

    On his campaign trail,the Donald has been screaming about Mexicans been rapist and criminals.Muslims hate America.Making fun of a lady television reporter's monthly period for asking him tough questions in a debate.Wanting to punch and kick protesters who disrupt his rallies.

    And tonight in Chicago,these angry protesters turned up and wanting to make the Donald wet his pants in front of the audience.But the Donald,a man of big words but with small marbles and a tiny prick,chickened out and cancelled his rally,boarded his private jet with his tail between his legs and headed back to New York.

    This Donald Trump is the twin dude to our own politicians.Play with fire and please do not cry and wail for your mamas when you get your fingers burned.
